THE STRANGE SEEDS OF COVERT OPS? JOSEPH P. FARRELL for Giza Death Star
There’s a very weird story circulating right now, and it kicks off this weeks blogs of what is shaping up to be even more strangeness in our weird world. In fact, quite a few people spotted this story and sent it along, so it naturally starts this week’s blogs, along with my thank you to all of you who spotted and shared it. I’m focusing on articles shared by K.M. and C.S., so an especial thanks to you two.
If you’ve been following my blogs and more particularly, watched last week’s News and Views, then you’ll already be familiar with the train of thought I’ve been developing vis-a-vis China. Briefly, I think all the signs are there that “the West” and China are now involved in a fully-fledged covert war that has in some respects “gone hot.” I qualify “the West” with quotation marks, however, because I think we are in a geopolitical paradigm shift of major proportions, such that the very nature of “the West” is being redefined. One might equally say that we are not looking at “the West” at all, but rather, a new geopolitical-cultural bloc opposed to Communist China. On the flip side of that, this geopolitical paradigm shift – and the covert wars that I believe are accompanying it – is being in part driven by the massive flooding in China, and all that those imply: the devastation of Chinese agriculture and its economy, the revelations of massive loan frauds and fake collateral for them in the billions of dollars inside of China, the COVID virus, the clamp down on Hong Kong, the border clash with India, the joint military exercises now being held involving the USA, India, Australia, the Japanese rearmament, Mr. Xi’s attempts to purge the Communist party leadership of competition, the US shutdown of its consulate in Houston, and, as I outlined in last Thursday’s News and Views, the possibility that the Trump administration’s Caribbean “drug intervention” was about much more than drug intervention, but about another aspect of that covert warfare. We’ve already seen the stories about Chinese smuggling of automatic weapons parts into this country, and some people maintain that they were destined for the current crop of revolutionaries tearing apart some of America’s cities. In my view, as I argued in that News and Views, we may have been interdicting an attempt to smuggle into the USA a very nasty weapon of a wholly different and much more destructive sort.
The list goes on and on, but I think you get my point; as far as I can tell, the USA, in addition to being in a real “cultural civil war” that has “gone hot”, i.e., become violent, is simultaneously engaged in a hot, or at least very warm, covert war with China.
Well, with that in mind, there’s yet another data point to be added to this mix. As the following articles show, apparently ordinary people both inside the US and the UK have been receiving packages at their homes in the mail. From China. Full of seeds:
